Crimes That We Defend

No matter what charges you are facing, we are determined to seek the best possible outcome for your case.

Operating Under the Influence (OUI)

As common as it may seem, an OUI can lead to the loss of your basic rights like driving a car. The more convictions you have, the harsher the punishments can be. A first-time conviction alone can result in up to 2 years of imprisonment, a fine ranging from $500 - $5,000, and losing your license for up to 90 days. The penalties get much more severe after that. You should not take any risk when dealing with an OUI charge. Get in contact with our criminal defense attorneys today and we will get started on building your defense.

Violent Crimes

Assault & Battery

Often confused with each other or morphed into a single crime, Massachusetts defines assault as the attempt or intent of using force against someone. Assault and battery are defined as intentionally making contact with someone in a way that is likely to cause physical harm. A conviction of either of these crimes can mean that you are sentenced to a lengthy period of time in a house of corrections. Violent crime convictions often make it difficult to obtain employment, housing, or other rights. If you are facing any assault and battery charges, reach out to our criminal defense attorneys at Coastal Legal Affiliates, P.C in Fall River today and schedule your consultation.
